This is fresh upbeat print that brightens any boring room. We just moved into our new home and now have dark wood floors and dark bedroom furniture. I had to do something to break up the 'darkness' and this is a fun spin on the classic jute look. It works with my golden bed linens but I can see using a fun rugby stripped comforter or classic white. Many possibilities for decorating around it. Unfortunately the majority of it is covered by my king size bed. leaving about two feet on either side. I'll probably move it to the living room or another area to enjoy it more. It's very thin but soft. If it were in a higher traffic area I would probably get a carpet matting to go underneath to give it a bit more cushion. I've had not spills on it so I'm not sure how will it will stand up to cleaning. No shedding as of yet and it's been used for a few weeks now!
